Poultry’s Role in Food Security and Sustainability

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Poultry is big business. Rarely a month goes by without some sort of poultry food safety recall. Poultry farms are constantly in the news for questionable practices regarding how poultry are raised, impact on regional water sources, what drugs are fed to them, the environmental impact of manure, egg varieties and pricing, bacterial contamination of eggs, disposal of dead poultry and a variety of other factors impacting the industry’s ability to meet poultry product demand and environmental sustainability requirements.

This webinar will look at poultry’s role in food security and sustainability. While companies can supply poultry, eggs and poultry products in many forms, large poultry flocks are often threatened by disease outbreaks (avian influenza), regional legislation, and consumer demands for “caged”, “natural”, “free range” and other continuously changing factors.

Join this session by expert speaker John Ryan, where he will cover some of the most critical issues facing our need for a secure and sustainable poultry production effort

Why You Should Attend:

Poultry plays a most critical role in terms of food security and environmental sustainability. While many food suppliers are diligently attacking food security and sustainability issues on a world-wide basis, the poultry industry is perceived as failing to meet new demands. Disruptions to the poultry industry can have drastic impact on whether the industry can survive local or international disruptions. With traceability, labeling, environmental pressures, legal requirements, tariffs, and other pressures mounting, food supply chains from consumers and retail and restaurant outlets down through feed suppliers need to be continuously informed regarding problems and events surrounding poultry as a sustainable and secure food source.

  • Poultry product procurement personnel

  • U.S. food processors, distributors, retailers and restaurant chains

  • Restaurant and retail inventory control and buyers

  • Foreign food producers, importers and exporters
